Working on an IT infrastructure expansion or upgrade? Now is the time to get a power audit. Planning your power capacity, and its efficiency, is a vital step in any consolidation, expansion or virtualization project. Industry trends, such as rising energy costs and increased cooling requirements, have focused attention on efficiency in all aspects of network and infrastructure design.
A comprehensive power audit should include evaluating your network and identifying any problem areas and opportunities to improve overall power efficiency, which in turn cuts down on operating costs. All aspects of your network should be taken into consideration: cooling, physical and IT security, power distribution, network and infrastructure management, as well as network cabling and connectivity.
